Lazina Khan, lawyer, Marta Watson LLP

Which of your cases makes you proudest of the result?

As a litigation lawyer, the cases that make me the proudest is where I get to practice my advocacy in a courtroom. So much of our advocacy is done between counsel and paper that it has become rare to go to a courtroom and argue in front of a judge. Achieving a desirable result decided by third party is very rewarding.

What do you think the most important factor is in resolving a file?

The most important factor in reaching a resolution is to have the ability to see the position of the opposing side and predict their arguments. Once you place yourself in the shoes of the other party, the path to resolution of a file becomes clearer.

What’s the most valuable lesson that your professional experience has taught you?

The profession of law is small and most lawyers know of each other. I have learned to always remain collegial with other lawyers. Collegiality with opposing counsel goes a long way in reaching a desirable result for your client and speedy resolution in a file.
